the Maurice N. Beigelman Collection of Ophthalmology


The Maurice N. Beigelman Collection of Ophthalmology contains landmark works in vision science from the Renaissance and later. Maurice N. Beigelman, M.D. (1896-1975), a Los Angeles ophthalmologist, donated these rare books to the UCLA Biomedical Library in 1954. This gift formed a core around which the library built and continues to develop collections of primary sources in the structure, functions, and diseases of the eye
